Baraboo's Hailey Hinz and Sauk Prairie's Ainsley Apel fight for possession during an April 25 Badger North Conference game at Sauk Prairie High School.

The Sauk Prairie prep girls soccer team beat Portage/Poynette on Friday to ensure that there would be a de facto Badger North Conference championship game.

The unbeaten Eagles earned a 9-0 home win over Poynette/Portage to improve to 5-0-1 in Badger North play, meaning that the winner of Thursday's game at Waunakee (13-1-2, 6-0-0) will be the outright conference champion.

Sauk Prairie scored throughout the win over Portage/Poynette, starting with Katelyn Fishnick's goal in the third minute. Kelsey Selden added goals in the seventh and 21st minute, while Fishnick's 25th-minute goal gave the Eagles a 4-0 halftime lead.

Fishnick continued to find the back of the net in the second half, scoring in the 47th and 48th minute. Jordan O'Connor, Camryn Ballweg and Ella Schad added insurance goals as Sauk Prairie scored at least seven goals for the fifth time this season.

Goalkeeper Bridget Fabian made three saves to record the Eagles' ninth shutout of the year.

The wins kept coming on Saturday, with Sauk Prairie earning a 12-0 win over Waupaca, a 4-0 win over Menasha and a 2-0 win over Marquette (Mich.) in a tournament at Waupaca.

The Eagles have outscored their opponents 83-4 on the season and have seven straight shutout wins since a 3-1 win over Baraboo on April 25. Fabian was asked to make just five saves on the weekend for Sauk Prairie (15-0-1), which climbed to No. 5 in this week's Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association Division 2 rankings.

Fishnick scored eight goals on the weekend — four against Waunakee and two apiece against Marquette and Menasha. Ballweg scored three goals against Waupaca, while Alia Schlimgen had two goals, and Lauren Frosch and Riley Breunig each added one goal. Breunig and Selden scored one goal apiece against Menasha.
